ARCH DAKSHIN 2016 - Southern Regional Conference in Hyderabad on August 19-20, 2016

The Southern Regional Conference, a Biannual event, is a Congregation of Architects with focus and participation of architects from the Southern Region.

The Indian Institute of Architects, Telangana State Chapter were the winners of SRC –Trophy (Rolling Trophy) in 2014, and are privileged to now host the Mega Celebration of Southern Region of Architects –ARCH DAKSHIN-2016

IIA observes the centenary year and the “Celebration of Creativity”

The Conference is being organised on the theme of Collaborative Architecture -Technology and Inclusiveness in Practice.

In recognition of value-creation in designing our dynamic world today, with constantly evolving technologies and changing environments, the architectural practice demands a widening of perspective. When diverse points of view and ideas from various architects, consultants, manufacturers and end-users in the architectural field are put together, design innovation happens.

Another interesting sub theme is “Architect Beyond Architecture”. In this segment we will invite qualified architects who have adopted and explored different professions and achieved excellence in fields like cartooning, film making, manufacturing, structural engineering, politics etc. We would like to hear from them how their architectural upbringing has helped them shape their chosen careers.


As the winner of SRC Rolling trophy, the chapter is organising number of events to encourage active participation from all the chapters and the Chapter(other than Host) with outstanding performance, will win the Trophy, and retain the same until the next SRC.
